Packaging Producer Opened New Production Facilities in France

Mauser Group has opened new IBC (Intermediate Bulk Containers) production and reconditioning facilities together with its subsidiary National Container Group (NCG) and its joint venture partner Janus Vaten B.V. at its French site of St Priest.

According to Mauser Group, the NCG site in St Priest (South of France) is directly connected to the new Mauser IBC production factory, thus eliminating the need for road transport of IBC bottles. Two buildings contain a semi-automatic washing line for IBCs made out of stainless steel, as well as a re-bottling line for assembly of re-bottled IBCs. The site has all necessary equipment for handling residues, repair facilities and in-line testing of reconditioned containers.

As reported, Mauser Group is a producer of industrial packaging with approximately 4,000 employees and a consolidated revenue of over one billion Euro. Founded in 1896 and headquartered in Ootsterhout (The Netherlands), the company’s portfolio for customers in the chemical, agrochemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical sectors as well as in the food and beverage industries includes plastic packaging, fiber drums, steel drums, Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC), and reconditioning services through the National Container Group (NCG), a Mauser subsidiary. The company provides sustainability-oriented full cycle services – from production to recycling (“Eco-Cycle“). With more than 100 sites and multiple joint ventures in Europe, the Americas and Asia plus two licensee networks for plastic and steel packaging, the company is a presence around the globe.
